Ate breakfast here for several mornings and the breakfast menu is very good! Bacon is not oily and very crispy! The cinnamon raisin French toast was wonderful! Highly recommend this place for breakfast! Located overlooking the boat docks.

The service was slow, although friendly, and the food was mediocre at best and very expensive. The view however was stunning. The restaurant and bar overlook the marina.

We ate here as it is part of the hotel where we stayed. We only had breakfasts, and they were very good. The view of the marina was lovely, as well as interesting to watch the boats. The wait staff was very busy and yet efficient, albeit trying to get a 2nd cup of coffee proved to be a challenge... More

I have read reviews saying that the service was slow but we did not find that. Food was good. Nice to have the option of sitting inside or outside overlooking the bay.

The restaurant is inside the Best Western Island Palms Hotel on Shelter Island. There are three entrances, from the marina, the pool area and the hotel lobby. We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and frequented the place several times during our stay. Food was good (restaurant week) and the service was good and timely. i recommend this place.... More
